August Fishing Report.

The GoFish Nagambie fishing report puts the spotlight on the Goulburn River, Nagambie Lakes and surrounds for a look at what’s biting and the gear that’s doing all the damage.

Young Jack (pictured above) spent his school holidays fishing Lake Nagambie and learnt to cast and retrieve surface lures like a pro and was thrilled to catch a little reddie of the surface, but his catch of the day was that ripper 50cm cod caught on a yabbie. Well done mate! Jack is certainly a contender to take out the kids comp at GoFish Nagambie that’s for sure.

With only this month left to get amongst the Cod, we are praying to the weather gods that they come through with the goods for us, so we can enjoy the last of cod season before we let them nest. Speaking of the weather gods, The GoFish Nagambie team lucked out last weekend and managed to tempt a beauty from the cool clear waters around Nagambie on a stunning morning. The winning combo doing the damage was the Balista Lures Dyno 90 and the Abu Garcia Veritas and Revo Premier. An absolute ripper session.

It includes sections of the Goulburn River that open up into the lakes basin before turning into billabongs and backwaters as it meanders its way to the Goulburn Weir.
